Liberals love to insult Sarah Palin’s intelligence. It’s not a subject on which I have any particular opinion, except to note that, apparently by a remarkable coincidence, her judgment is correct on just about every subject. For instance, Israel. Today she and her husband Todd were in Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Post reports:
Palin and her husband Todd arrived for a two-day visit on Sunday afternoon and toured the Western Wall and its adjacent tunnels. They will visit the Old City again on Monday, tour Gesthsemane and the Mount of Olives, and have dinner with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara at their official residence in Jerusalem. …
World Likud chairman Danny Danon and Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz served as Palin’s tour guides on Sunday night. Palin was told that Jews were not allowed to pray openly on the Temple Mount and about the Arab riots that accompanied Netanyahu’s decision to authorize the creation of an exit from the Western Wall tunnels in 1996.
“Why are you apologizing all the time?” Palin asked her guides.
Good question. Palin expressed the view that Jews should be able to pray openly on Temple Mount. Why should that be controversial?
“It’s overwhelming to be able to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith,” Palin told reporters upon exiting the tunnels. … “She said that she absolutely supports Israel and that America is the biggest friend that Israel has,” Rabinowitz said. …
Danon said that Palin’s visit to the Western Wall Tunnels was very exciting. He called upon Obama to make his first visit to Israel as president as soon as possible.
“She really connected to the story of the Jewish nation,” Danon said. “She knows the material but there’s nothing like standing in front of those big stones and hearing about the connection. I know that she loves Israel, and after a visit like this, she has a personal connection to the Western Wall.”
Palin, who was wearing a large Star of David, told Danon that she had flags of Israel “on my desk, in my home, all over the place” and that she would carry around a flag she bought in Israel.
“She didn’t go into diplomatic issues, but I can clearly say from the questions she asked in relation to our conflict here with the Muslims in these holy sites that she knows that we are right and that the Muslims are just claiming things for provocation and they’re not right,” Danon said.
UPDATE: As you can see in the comments, nothing brings out the libs like saying a kind word about Sarah Palin. I’ve given up trying to understand the left’s derangement when it comes to Palin. It is not, as many conservatives like to believe, that liberals are afraid of her; they genuinely do believe she is stupid. But so what? I think Joe Biden is an idiot, but I don’t obsess over it, and I don’t go crazy whenever anyone mentions his name. It may be left to historians of a future generation to come up with a definitive diagnosis of Palin Derangement Syndrome.
